Option to ignore currency

• What feature do you want to see in Sharesight? I would like to see an option to include/exclude currency gain in the performance calculation. A similar toggle to showing open vs open & closed positions
• Why do you want it? I would like to see the ‘pure’ performance of the investment itself, inclusive of dividends/distributions but without FX impact
• How is this affecting you? While I appreciate that FX movements are part of investing internationally in other currencies the FX movement is not intrinsically a consideration for me in investment performance. When I am comparing investment A to investment B - whether in local currency or a foreign currency (and the foreign currency could be the same or different), the FX impact is not something I want to consider.
• Do you currently have a workaround solution? If yes, what is it? The best workaround is to simply add cap gains percentage to dividend percentage - though I have to do this manually. I know that this is not a correct calculation for total return due to the way that the formula works however it is the best proxy for what I want to see. It is less than ideal.
• Can we reach out in future to ask follow up questions about this idea? Yes
